VIDEO: Bull shark swims into Florida family's back garden

We don't know about you but the most exciting animal that comes into our back garden is the neighbour's cat .

But these residents of Bonita Springs in Florida have some altogether more terrifying visitors - an 8-foot bull shark.

As you can see in the video, the shark is far too close to the path for comfort - and locals say it's not the first time.

From NBC-2:

Neighbors say people are chumming — throwing bait into the water — which is causing the sharks to return. Now, they are asking the city to get involved and prohibit fishing as well as designate the area as a swimming only area.
